The success of every business or nonprofit depends on the collaboration and melding of ideas.
Integrity, competence, insight, dedication, and effectiveness are vital to the successful operation of the organization. While non-profits are required to have a board of directors, for-profit businesses are not. But even the smallest business, including (and maybe especially) one-person shops, can benefit from formal or informal boards to provide insight and new ideas. Join us and learn the science and art of effective boardmanship.
